If you ever try to reach your Marin real estate agent on a Wednesday or Thursday, you may need to catch them "on the go' since these two days are often blocked out for Marin County Brokers Tour.
What is Marin Brokers Tour?
Brokers Tour, which is sometimes referred to as "Brokers Open" or an "Agent Caravan", is a special day when new listings are held open for other real estate brokers and real estate agents in Marin. These property tours are typically held in advance of Marin open house tours which are primarily intended for the general public.
The primary objective of these Marin Broker Tours is to allow buyers agents and other realtors in Marin County to preview new listings for their clients. Additionally, these tours often serve as a great opportunity for the listing agent to gather candid feedback from other agents regarding the home which the sellers agent can then share with their clients.
While most attendees at these Broker Open Tours are other realtors, you will occasionally see busy agents attend with personal clients since it gives them an opportunity to see the property first hand before the first public open house. While not always the case, the first Sunday open house is usually held just after the property was debuted earlier in the week on brokers tour.
